I am simply stating the bible problem is this: 10*(Pi rounded to a whole number)=30.<quoted text>No, Polymath is right. If the diameter rounds to 10, then its value is between 9.5 and 10.49, which means that the value of the diameter is between 29.85 and 32.96, which would round to 30, 31, 32, or 33 depending on the non-rounded value of the diameter. Remember, we're talking about an actual physical object, not an abstract paper problem.

The really weird aspect of this little interchange is that I've persuaded Polymath to agree with you, i.e. if the actual value of the diameter is rounded to 10, then 30 is one of the possible rounded values of the circumference. But you are so attached to being in disagreement with him that you still have to argue that he's wrong. That's cognitive dissonance on steroids, my friend.

Not: 10*Pi=(31.4 rounded to whole number)
